This indispensable guide critically evaluates for hypertension specialists both established and new techniques for diagnosing and treating secondary hypertension in adults and children. Drawing on a variety of medical disciplines-including nephrology, endocrinology, internal medicine, and pediatrics-its world-renowned authors review the critical scenarios that should prompt a search for secondary forms of hypertension, and detail appropriate testing for these uncommon disorders. Additional coverage is given to exogenous or such less-appreciated causes of secondary hypertension as obstructive sleep apnea, primary aldosteronism, renovascular hypertension, and the effects of noncardiac drugs.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book covers renovascular, endocrine, and pulmonary causes of secondary hypertension and its treatments. It is well written and easy to read with an exhaustive index. The book provides historical and contemporary information on each subject. A unique aspect of this book is the attention given to surgical therapy using excellent figures. This is an excellent book for several reasons. First, it is compact and readable, with up-to-date information from several medical specialties, obviating the need for multiple larger books to gather this information. Second, it offers a comprehensive literature review providing a historical perspective in each subject area. Finally, the infrastructure of the book (tables, figures, index) is clear and complete." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"...this book should be in the library of primary care physicians, internists, and specialists in nephrology, cardiology, and endocrinology." -The New England Journal of Medicine"...a comprehensive reference...timely and well worth reading by doctors involved in hypertension excellent and informative volume and highly recommended for physicians involved in the management of hypertensive disorders..." - Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology and Physiology"...the book provides an outstanding review of hypertension." - The Annals of Pharmacology"Over 17 chapters written by specialists in the field, reexamine the classical aetiologies of secondary hypertension in light of the current knowledge but also address the effects of non-cardiac drugs and obstructive sleep apnoea. . We strongly recommend this excellent work which is of great value not only for students but also for all physicians interested in a better management and treatment of patients with refractory hypertension." (Victor Legrand, Acta Cardiologica, April, 2005)"Secondary Hypertension: Clinical Presentation, Diagnosis and Treatment is a timely volume on this important subject. . This book updates various medical conditions that contribute to hypertension and summarizes the clinical features . . will be of great value not only to physicians involved in hypertension research and in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education (which includes most pediatric nephrologists), but also to internists in practice. The price is right, and I recommend a copy of this book in each medical library." (Manju Chandra, Pediatric Nephrology, Vol. 21, February, 2006)
